Chanse Dunn, a senior at west high school is being awarded a prestigious scholarship, not only for his academics, but also for embracing who he is as an openly gay student. Instead of letting his sexuality define his high school experience, Chanse Dunn spoke up and stood out. He’s a Senior at Sioux Cities West High School, and openly gay. He’s now being awarded with the Matthew Shepard Scholarship, partly due to his courage to take a stand, but he admits, it wasn’t always easy.
